I have a patent on the use of the mouth for, but not limited to,speaking, spitting, eating, sucking on a straw, chewing, osculating, cunnilingus, fellatio and all other discovered and undiscovered. I also have a patent on the use of hands, fingers, and toes for any and all types of communication including keyboarding.
It is therefor illegal for any person to have communicated the putative cart paten cart patent into law, or for any other purpose.
I guess I have to go back to putting a /sarcasm at the end of my postings, or perhaps there really is an interest in such videos..
The knowledge that a person goes to into a jewelry story, visits a doctor, sees a lawyer, etc is potentially harmful in the wrong hands. An SO may ask why did you go to the MD, see a divorce lawyer, or go into a jewelry store? Or anyone who can get possession of such videos (including LEOS) may use them for blackmail.
The knew or should have known standard should apply to the professional members of the legal system even more so than the average citizen. I wouldn't say one strike and you are out, but there has to be a limit.
I may be just guessing, but there had to be some citizen, perhaps a clerk or mailboy who knew and understood what 230 meant.
The real purpose of these laws is to provide police, DAs, ADAs and Councilmen access to videos of children being examined in Pediatricians offices. The rest of the business's are simply collateral damage.
It is not just the FBI, but every branch and action of government. Except of course, for those feelgood exploits like cutting a ribbon for the installation of a playground or serving a Thanksgiving meal to the poor.
The mess ship has sailed. At least one company that will go unnamed has blatantly refused to fix known bugs in a lighting system that leaves other systems in the residence wide open to crackers.
I certainly have strong beliefs about never sending a person where you can send an electron (paraphrased from J Edgar Hoover.) But just how much loss of security is voice control worth in the turning on a light? Especially when there are other, safe ways of doing this than by means which expose your digital life?
Sorry to say, but TD has already passed his peak of maturity, and is falling with rapidly increasing jerk (third derivative of position, it is the change is acceleration.) Actually, he is obviously experiencing a rapidly increasing drop (8th derivative,) the mathematical term of jerk probably gets the message across better to those not familiar with calculus.
Right you are. Left and Right (Liberal and Conservative) are as meaningful as sports team names, or red and blue teams in steal the flag. They serve as poles of attraction to which individuals are drawn by assignment or popularity. Once attracted to a pole, the camouflage required to remain in that locale means adopting a "platform." How can anyone in their right mind take on the talking points in any such doctrine? Even the Constitution has its flaws.
I was once described as a libertarian, socialist, strict constructionist. It is an appellation that I am proud of, in that it means that I think for myself rather than follow a butting order of bovines around.
I will certainly agree that for profit prisons provide a key part of the problem, and the difficulties of ex offenders finding a way of making a livelihood. But the problem goes deeper than that. A great part is the use of fear mongering with ridiculous crime (currently at a low) as a means of political pandering.
I hear all too many people claim that crime is at an all time high. That people who commit minor violations should be jailed for life. And that if someone is arrested, they are guilty. I have no idea how the public should be educated, but it needs it desperately.
This is a start, but even with laboratory based testing, there is little assurance of a correct result. There is often significant pressure from the police for a "positive." Sink testing is all too frequent. Some laboratory staff like to play god with other peoples lives. Forensic testing is often slipshod, and does not provide proper quality assurance such as double blind testing.
Perhaps the solution is to make the outcome the outcome of a gladatorial contest between the chairman of the board and the reputed infringers. The title legally required to be assumed by every surviving officer in the line of hierarchy. Said officers never having been permitted to be athletes of any kind as a part of their contractual TOSs.
This would serve two purposes. First it would reduce the number of such cases, and secondly reduce the salary contests for corporate officers. /s
Makes no less sense than making copying a game a felony, and would do great collateral good.
What does HBO use the phrase "Winter is coming for?" If it is for a title, then there is no infringement because titles are no longer required to be unique. If it is not a title, then there can be no confusion.
If they trademark "Winter is coming" can I hold them liable for all the damage done by Winter, the additional cost of heating, clearing snow and the increase in the price of produce? If, as it appears this year that winter is not coming, can snow based resorts sue them for lost profits?
